We’ll cut to the chase: chemicals in “regular” sunscreens are harmful.

We use sunscreen to avoid the detrimental effects of UV rays, so we’re not looking to have the ingredients in our SPFs harm us too.
While chemical sunscreens still run the aisle of common drugstores, each year we’re seeing more brands embrace the importance of clean formulas, particularly in sun care.
Today we’re sharing Poosh-approved SPF options to use daily, rain or shine.
